André Villas-Boas: ‘I Don’t Lose Sleep Over Break-Up With José Mourinho’: Nightly Soccer Report

In the lead up to Saturday’s grudge match between Tottenham and Chelsea, Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas says he doesn’t lose sleep over his break-up with Blues manager Jose Mourinho.

Villas-Boas revealed:

“Our break-up point was because I was full of ambition to give him something extra [at Inter] and I wanted further involvement for the job I was doing at the time, which was scouting and match preparation. I felt I could give him much more so my initial idea was to keep working with him. But he didn’t feel the need for somebody near to him or in another position as an assistant and, because of that, it was decided it was time to continue our careers [apart].”

While the two men, who worked together at Porto, Chelsea and Inter, no longer talk to each other as friends, the focus is on Saturday in what should be a very close encounter between two of the best teams in the Premier League based on current form.

I’m predicting this one will be a very tense affair between two teams that will cancel each other out. Despite how entertaining this game could be, I’m predicting a dour nil-nil result. What’s your feeling about this one? Post your prediction in the comments section below.
